Creating havoc for the residents and passers-by, a major part of the road near Bohra Ganesh area has been blocked since past 7 days due to reparation of drainage system being carried out by Udaipur Municipal Corporation (nagar parishad).
Except warning boards, little or almost no progress has been noticed since a week and the condition of the area is so worst that it is almost impossible to pass through that road. Moreover, many accidents have occurred due to open holes on the pathway.
Rajesh Sahu and Dinesh Sahu who own a shop in the area said, “The road was digged 7 days back and the actual work was done only on the initial 2 days. And since then we have not seen anyone from either Municipality or the contract workers.”
“Dirty water and foul smell is spreading around the area because of this so called repairing activity, it is bothering the entire neighborhood,” Sahu said.
Being one of the major connecting roads between MLSU and Bohra Ganesh area, traffic is also affected badly, it is almost unmanageable for any vehicle to cross the road.
Sanjay Taneja, a resident of the same area informed, “Many vehicles lose their balance while crossing this opening. This can cause fatal accident at night time.”
The occupants of the region are upset with local authority for prolonging the work and they have decided to protest against the disruption.
The area is divided into two wards, Ward-35 and Ward-36 and the councilors for these two wards are Madhu Paliwal and Shipra Upadhyay respectively. Both could not be reached as their phones were either switched off or did not respond to our call.
